Compressed air usually contains many contaminants that can mean harm to the product being manufactured at your facility, or the air that's being breathed in. That's not all, these contaminants can also cause a series of problems for your air compressor as well. They can corrode your air distribution and air storage vessels, and/ or damage or block the production equipment, resulting in unhealthy working conditions and product contamination.
Of the ten most harmful contaminants found in compressed air, nine can be removed using air filtration technology. Your air compressor can incorporate different styles of filters to significantly improve the compressed air quality.
Air Filters at Compressor World
At Compressor World, filters for compressed air are available in multiple designs and styles from reputed brands, including Deltech, Nano, Coilhose Pneumatics, Domnick Hunter, and Quincy. Compare multiple filters side-by-side to weigh your options before choosing one.
Here's a quick guide to types of Air Filters:
- Particulate filters - 5 Microns
- Coalescing filters - 1 Micron
- Fine coalescing filters - 0.01 Microns
It's recommended that Air Compressor Filters be chosen keeping in mind the air quality they provide, the operation costs involved, and the environmental impact. An Air Filter that's coming at a low price may not necessarily be good for your air compressor. Experts also suggest installing a 3-Valve bypass around the filters and dryer, so that these components can be serviced without having to shut down the air compressor system.
